    The only thing we did was season the tator tots. It was perfect!

    This casserole is a favorite at my house. My husband and kids love it. I always double it and add some veggies, such as green beans or corn.

    Don't bother. Look at picture - nothing to it. Many other recipes that are much better.

    Been looking for something cheap quick and simple.. You can sub real milk with lactate milk about 3 dollars a half gallon at Walmart™ and sub the cheese with lactate free Bordens™. Great portion to feed both me and my boyfriend.

    I doubled the recipe and added some frozen mixed vegetables about 1 1/2 cups, 1 tsp worcheshire sauce, 1 tsp basil and put it in a 3 quart dish. I had to cook this longer 45-50 minutes. This was delicious!

    Quick and easy recipe! I doubled this recipe and substituted ground turkey for beef. I also added 2 cups of frozen, cooked veggies to this dish. Tastes great and is great for busy weeknights!

    Quick and easy - planning on making this during our vacation at the beach this summer since it doesn't require a lot of ingredients.

    My husband wanted it back on the menu for the next day. He said, "babe, you can make that as much as you want." Kids all loved it too.
